Hi, David, I have moslty used Samplitude and, while I have had some dramatic effects, most of the time it's been less than I hoped for. I think it depends on where the clipping occurred. It is much better with digital clipping in the original than analog clipping/tape overload (which is most of what I do). I should try Izotope again. That's a good recommendation for it.
